“ It was the perfect break we needed. ”


- Kayleigh's mom

Kayleigh breathes in the warm, southern air and feels her heart lifting. This sweet seven-year-old from Lugoff, South Carolina, is in the place that she's dreamed of. Her wish, to go to KayleighHugSeaWorld® Theme Park and swim with dolphins is finally coming true. When Kayleigh was diagnosed with a respiratory condition, she held onto the promise of her wish as she bravely faced doctor visits and not feeling well.

Now the time is here and she can't wait to enjoy every second of it. At SeaWorld, Kayleigh and her family begin their adventure with an special tour that covers every aspect of the park. Kayleigh feels the opportunity to interact and swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove® is going to be the highlight of her trip! She laughs and enjoys riding the thrilling water rides at Aquatica® Water Park, which includes many water slides.

Kayleigh and her family hop over to Disney's Hollywood StudiosTM and ride even more rides, play games and meet many costume characters; the perfect day, Kayleigh thinks. For a week Kayleigh lives carefree and doesn't think of herself as the girl with a respiratory condition but only of all the fun she's having. She leaves Orlando with exciting souvenirs, including a charm bracelet, a whale stuffed toy, and a dolphin stuffed toy. But the best thing she leaves with is the happy memories she and her family created...memories that will last a lifetime. “We had so much fun. It was perfect break we needed.” Kayleigh’s mother said.
